Great staff; experienced and helpful. Even had prescription goggles for our near sighted person. Water was choppy, so snorkeling was challenging, but they had foam floaters that made it much easier.

Spectacular snorkeling trip at Molikini crater! The water was sparkling clear, fish everywhere! Crew was awesome, friendly and funny! Turtle town was ok, I’d prefer more clear snorkeling, but the entire adventure was great and we would highly recommend!

What a great experience and a nice crew. The boat was comfortable and spacious, the crew was nice and the underwater experience was fantastic. We had clear views at both Molokini and the Turtle cove. The captain shared interesting facts about the area, getting equipment was efficient and easy. It was a great experience overall. I would suggest NO cheese on the sandwiches. :-)
